While being in a rush, i was installing an app for powerpoint and i did not check for programs/pups comming with the installer. Indeed my laptop got infected 15 mins before a meeting(my first one outside england), i almost lost my promotion because of these malwares. But hopefully someone told me about adwcleaner, which is a great tool+ it's completly free. Really guys thank you so much :D.
Love the site, helped me clean a customers computer using this program, malwarebytes, RstHosts, AdsFix, Rkill. Keep doing what your doing :)
Awesome work! I have a few things to mention though:
AdwCleaner keeps detecting SereneScreen's Marine Aquarium as a problem. This is a legit screensaver I paid for. Please configure it to stop detecting this as a problem. Also HCKU\Software\SlimWare Utilities are not adware / malware or any kind of problem either - it's a program called AVG Driver Updater - it can be downloaded from here: http://www.avg.com/us-en/avg-driver-updater
It's also strange that the AVG PC Tuneup Task Background Maintenance is detected under Scheduled Tasks. AVG PC Tuneup is a legitimate optimization suite that has the to clean registry , temporary files and broken shortcuts and defrag in the background. It's a legit program I installed myself and that can be downloaded from AVG.com.
Other than that, it's a great program. PLEASE:
1. Provide a "Send Feedback / Report incorrect detections" option in the program.
2. Provide the option to have an exclusion list and exclude incorrect detections from being re-detected in future scans, as unchecking every single detail in every single tab gets tiresome.
Keep up the great work!
Found 41 items in HKLM/Software...but info is in complete,so i don't know if they're safe to remove or not...it also keeps adding the Sendspace and extensions folders all the time,yet I do know there is no malware in either of those. If these issues don't get fixed,I'll have to stop using the program,rather than screw up my computer by deleting something I may need.
i hope this is ligit. looks ligit. i get fake blue screen scams sometimes and usually end task and close the browser fixes it. but recently its getting more frequent and annoying so i downloaded this software. didn't find any malware but i'll keep scanning periodically to see if it catches anything.
The problem remains< Hao169 malware still changes the default page back to hao169.cn through the shortcut manipulation< i tried every malware tool even spyhunter and it didn't work.
i searched the internet for a solution and i have found non.
the cause of this malware is this application: https://firedrop.com/cde80bce1d89426b
i hope the developer of this app can study it.
hao 169 can't be removed, please check it, i'm on win10 and every time the malware changes the browsers shortcut to hao 169 webpage.
hice la cuenta solo para agradecer, me quito el yessearch y otros malware. MUCHAS GRACIAS
